About The Book

It all started on Christmas Day 1993. Lisa and Lonnie were sitting on their moms rickety yard swing when Lisas curiosity took over. She asked Lonnie questions about his life on the street about being homeless. To her surprise he answered honestly humorously and thoughtfully.That conversation continued throughout the next four years as Lisa wrote questions on postcards addressed to herself then mailed them in packets to Lonnie at the flower shop on his corner. He wrote his answers and mailed them back. Lonnie answered a lot of questions and even asked a few too. His detailed matter-of-fact responses gave Lisa an unfettered view of a population living on the fringes of society and the issues they face every day.Postcards from Lonnie is a dialogue between Lonnie who speaks through the postcards and his sister who not only learns a lot about her brother but also about herself. Intimate and revealing this is a unique family memoir and a universal story of love respect family and ultimately hope.
